Inspire their remarkable with us

Clacton Coastal Academy is situated in Clacton on Sea and serves Clacton and Jaywick, part of which is noted as the most deprived area in England. The academy is on an accelerated journey of improvement following its last Ofsted inspection in March 2018. Under the current leadership of the Executive Headteacher, strong foundations and a new senior leadership team are now in place and the academy is on target to achieve improved outcomes at GCSE. Within the new leadership structure the new Headteacher will lead the academy from September 2019, reporting into David Hatchett, AET's National Director of Secondary Schools.

This is an unique opportunity for a dynamic leader to lead the Academy and improve the life chances of students often from a challenging context whilst securing remarkable lives for them all.

Within this role, you must be resilient, driven, ambitious and able to:

● Be brave, discover what's possible, push the limits and be big-hearted

● Dynamically lead school improvement

● Lead, inspire and develop others

● Commit to each and every child being inspired to have a remarkable life.

Clacton Coastal Academy is part of Academies Enterprise Trust (AET), a national network of over 60 primary, secondary and special academies.

We passionately believe that every child can discover their own remarkable life. It's what motivates us around here. We know this vision requires something extra. Which is why at AET, you'll find more. More opportunities, so you can forge your own path. More care and support, so you can prioritise what matters most. More purpose, for you and for the children we're inspiring.

We offer:

● More like minded colleagues, so you can benefit from others' experience - You're connected to our network of over 60 academies and thousands of education professionals.

● More opportunities, so you can forge your own path - As a large and expanding multi academy trust, there are ample opportunities for development and new experiences.

● More hands on support, so you can get on with what matters most - Expert operations support removes headaches, allowing you to focus on the children.

● More time - We strive to minimise unnecessary distractions so you can have energy for your job, and your life.

Our new Headteacher will enjoy the autonomy of leadership rooted in the local community, whilst working in partnership with the regional cluster of academies and nationally through AET's National Director of Secondary Schools, David Hatchett, with support from a committed local governing board.

For an exceptional candidate there could be proven leadership opportunities across more than one school in the future and the opportunity to commence the role in January 2020 will also be considered in some circumstances for an exceptional candidate.

Closing date:Friday 17 May 2019, 9am

Interview dates:Wednesday 22 May 2019 (Clacton) and Thursday 23 May 2019 (London)
